3 Benefits of Using Filtered Water When Cooking, Wappinger, New York

Water is used in various aspects of food preparation, from washing dishes and rinsing produce to steaming vegetables and boiling dried goods. But if you lack a water filtration system, hard water can influence the quality of your dishes. Here’s why filtered water results in the safest and best tasting food.

Why Is Filtered Water Important for Food Prep?

1. Protect Your Health

Unfiltered water may contain contaminants such as chlorine, pesticide, and bacteria, which may cause short- and long-term digestive and respiratory issues. Cooking with a water filtration system removes any trace of these contaminants to reduce your risk of developing related health issues. 

2. Improve the Taste

For instance, pasta absorbs the water it is boiled in; if the water is unfiltered, your noodles may share the same taste and odor. This is also true for boiled beverages, such as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. 

3. Streamline the Cooking Process

Using hard water can make cooking more time-consuming. For instance, the minerals in hard water prevent the protein in bread from absorbing water, thus slowing down the process of fermentation. A pot of water may also take longer to boil as the minerals interfere with the pressure of the water vapor.
